So is it a copy of Dave Patricks Super CUB?

I have the Dave P. Cub and it looks the same to me, just a different color. Just my observation.

My guess is that it is a rework of the H9 J3 1/4 scale Cub design. It would be a lot easier to make a different cowl and add flaps and new trim scheme than to try to copy the DP design. I have both the H9 J3 cub and a DP supercub. I tried to use the canopy from the cub to replace a damaged DP canopy, and it was not a good fit, although useable. The DP fuse is a bit wider and flatter across the cowl area, not arched like the H9 cub. Also, with the wider fuse, the H9 cub Landing gear is not a replacement for the DP cub. I have to hand it to the folks at H9, their platinum ARFS are approaching the quality of design and construction that Dave Patrick had ten years ago. The DP cub is still the best arf I ever assembled, including some from Aeroworks. My DP cub has an OS 160 twin, which is totally enclosed, (see some of my earlier posts way back in this thread). It flys like the H9 ad, which uses a Saito 180 twin. I would expect that this ARF would make a great airplane. Its probably as close as we will ever get to a reissued DP cub.

Well, this may explain why Cermark didn't go through with bringing the DP Super Cub back. They had originally planned to do so but that project was dropped. It would make sense, especially if they may have been using the same factory to have the plane built. This one from Hanger 9 looks very good and while I swore up and down I wouldn't own another 1/4 scale Super Cub ( I have the DP Super Cub and a Dynaflite Super Cub) I might change my mind. I have a spare YS140 so..............

I have both the Hanger 9 J 3 and the DP Super Cub ,I don't think that the H9 Super Cub is a rehash of the J3.The H9 already has a parts list (windshield,cowl,gear,wing struts,ect.)The J3 windshield would fit at the top of the cabin but not at the instrument panel,looks like it might fit now and it cost only $13.49.The price of this plane is going to be cheaper than the new DP Super Cub was going to cost.They already have the manuel out http://www.horizonhobby.com/pdf/HAN4540-Manual.pdf .I would love to have this plane.You can see it here http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...arf-HAN4540#t1

This looks to be a great flying PA-18, and the paint scheme is sweet to, except for the black N numbers. I don't like the 18.5# weight figure, although I would hope they are maybe including the floats at that high of a weight for a 1/4 scale Cub. My DP PA-18 only weighs 14.5 lbs painted. I don't care what anyone says, a 19 lb Cub will fly ok/good, but it will not fly great/floaty like a Cub should fly. Its the same problem E-flite has with their little .25 71" PA-18. Its a great sport plane, but she sure don't fly scale. [&o]

Guys,

Glad to see you discussing this model as we are very excited to bring this model to market!

The models are on the water and we expect to begin shipping to dealers and customers the first week of November.

This Super Cub model is based upon our existing and popular 1/4 J3 Cub platform with many scale upgrades and building modifications. I think you will find that the model is rather nicely detailed and offers a number of optional accessories such as a full depth cockpit, navigation lights, float option, and of course for you electric guys an EP battery tray/motor mounting box.

The model that is shown flying in the video is powered with a Saito 182 twin using a Mcdaniel's onboard glow which requires a 4500 mAh 4 cell battery (7+oz) bringing this models AUW to 17lbs 6 oz. This AUW also includes the full depth cockpit kit(6.8 oz with glue) and the 1/4 scale pilot figure(5.8 oz). If you remove these 2 items from the model then you will end up with an AUW of 16lbs 10 oz. The model flies light and has plenty of power to do all the cool Cub maneuvers.

The weight range givenf on this model reflects the heaviest & lightest setup I have flown to date. The Power 110 on 8S is the heaviest setup due to the battery placement which required 16 oz of nose weight to achieve the forward C/G listed in the manual so do not think this model is heavy as it flies as expected with a very lightly loaded wing. If you use the lighter Zenoah G26 engine and keep all your radio gear forward and do not install the optional items noted then you could easily target a weight under the minimum weight range specified.

I think you will find the Super Cub has all the great flight characteristics you would look for along with all the scale bits that make it great to own. I could go on about the differences in this model and other Super Cubs from the past and present, but I am prejudiced so order yours today and have fun!

That sounds GREAT Bill. If we can keep it at 16 lbs with a 1.20 4-stroke, that's all I'm worried about. I love the way my H9 J-3 flies with a 1.20 4-stroke, so if its like that, then I'm pumped. Can you please tell us if the N numbers are a Vinyl type removable material?

Guess I'll try and make a way to get my batteries WAY forward, especially since I am planning on going with 8s 4000.

Bill,

Is there any way this can be ordered with red trim as opposed to blue?

Thanks,

My DPM Super Cub is over 10 years old this year. Any others out there still flying? I'm still using the original OS 160 twin with Keleo exhaust. It's still a blast to fly - one of my all time favorite airplanes. If I ever ruin this one, heaven forbid, I'll get a Hanger 9 Super Cub to replace it.

I occasionally fly mine also. It was the last one they ever sold.  I have thought about selling it, but I don't think anyone would want to give me even close to what I have invested. However, some of the arfys are costing quite a bit.

I mentioned in an earlier post that the H9 J3 cub canopy was not a good fit as a replacement for the DP due to the higher arched nose of the H9 J3 cub. However, I did try a canopy from the H 9 super cub and it is an EXACT fit! There is a strong relationship between the H9 super cub and the DP super cub. Maybe made in the same factory or with the same tooling. in any event, for all the DP lovers out there, the H9 cub is as close to a replacement as you will find today.

Thanks, that is good to know. I would suppose the cowl is good too.  Hope I never need either.

I sold mine a a few years ago and regret selling it. For those needing spares, Fiberglass Specialities sell the windscreen and cowl as well as the wheel pants for the clipped wing version. http://www.fiberglassspecialtiesinc.com

Default DPM supercub NIB

I have the opportunity to purchase a NIB DPM Piper supercub PA-18 1/4 scale. The ARF was purchased a few years ago and never assembled. How difficult is it find parts since they are no longer in production?

Hard to say.. could be very difficult.. therefore you need to sell it to me!

(but seriously.. unless busted a wing or such, likely that standard hardware for linkages, etc.. should suffice if something needed replacing).

The new Hangar 9 1/4 Super Cub is a very close rendition to the DP Cub. I have both and parts seem to be interchangeable. Cowl; windshield; landing gear; wing tube and possibly the wing too. I can say for sure that the DP S Cub is constructed from way better wood which makes it a bit tougher.
